If you're someone who finds themselves easily distracted, the People's Park Tavern is a great London pub to freelance from. With a bustling main bar downstairs, quieter upstairs bar and huge beer garden, you never have to go far for a change of scenery. And if you hit a wall completely then you can blow off steam with a couple of rounds of crazy golf in the garden, or enjoy a walk round neighbouring Victoria Park to refocus the mind.
